    The main "tip" I can give is...

    Make sure your metal detector is ON before detecting.

    DETECT WITH RESPECT - Have permission... Fill holes... Dispose of trash. - The Random Chat Thread - http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/ev...en-24-7-a.html

    You can call them and tell them where you're headed,.......

    They will help you choose the right unit.

    Right size, shape, and hole size, for the conditions you'll be dealing with.

    Another tip.... (on beach sand, wet & dry). Forget using the "standard Scoop with holes". A shovel will dig deeper & Faster than Any scoop made.Click image for larger version.

    Just my view, if you are mainly beach detecting I would get the 600, you will find just as much, and put the $200 you have saved on a pair of Gray Ghost Amphibian waterproof headphones.

    Good advice. I live on S. Hutchinson island and when I grid I drag my scoop so that I know where I have been. There are so many existing foot prints that you can't see where you have been, drag the scoop.
